Shazam Launches on GetJar

Shazam has made its mobile discovery app available on GetJar, marking the first time the company has made its app available on an independent app store.

The free Shazam app has proved to be a popular choice with Symbian, Android, BlackBerry and Windows phone users on GetJar. Shazam’s ability to attract music lovers to the site has led to GetJar including Shazam as one of five key apps to appear in its first movie theatre advertising campaign, due to launch in US theatres this month.

“GetJar has quickly grown to become a trusted source for mobile app downloads, and we are very pleased with the speed at which Shazam has become one of the most popular apps on GetJar,” says Shazam CEO, Andrew Fisher. “Driving app discovery is essential in this marketplace, where choice can be overwhelming, so we’re looking forward to seeing how GetJar’s advertising initiative impacts the level of interest and downloads from consumers.”
Symbian, Android, BlackBerry and Windows phone users can download the free version of Shazam from on their mobile. Shazam on GetJar comes with a free trial of its premium app, Shazam Encore, with unlimited tagging and exclusive features. When the trial ends, Shazamers pay once to keep using Encore or can continue to use the free version.
